WHAT?! Well, sort of. Actually, she'll play a rich Manhattanite who loses her high-paying job and posh Upper East Side apartment and decides to start a business helping rich New Yorkers get their kids into elite kindergartens. (Knowing someone who worked as an admissions officer at an elite kindergarten, this is not shocking to me.)

The movie is The Ivy Chronicles, based on a novel by Karen Quinn, and it will have to fight off the immediate impression that it's an epic fantasy film. In fact it's pitched as a comedy in the vein of The Devil Wears Pradaand The Nanny Diaries.
